Re: Acid structure

Most times an acid will start with H and end in the COOH box, but that does not happen every time.

Re: Switching 3d and 4s

The 4S orbital has higher energy than the 3D orbital, which is why you write it afterwards. Also, it is important to note that since the energy in the 4S orbital is higher, the electrons from that orbital will be removed before electrons in the 3D orbital are removed

Re: Wavelength/frequency

It is important to note that when the wavelength increases, the electro magnetic radiation's frequency decreases. Since energy of a photon is expressed through the formula E = hv, energy of the photon must decrease since frequency decreased.

As stated above, it is important to always follow the units that the problem gives you. It is also important to note that certain units such as joules are given in (kg(m^2))/s^2 and that the problem will not work if you use grams in it.

Re: Balancing equations with fractions [ENDORSED]

It might be easier to begin with the mole ratios in fractions, but the final answer must be given in whole numbers. Using whole numbers is important because when converting atoms needed etc. it is easiest to use whole numbers in the conversions.
